1974 Whitby Yachts 42′

Ever After



Port Charlotte, Florida




For Sale

1974 Whitby Center CockpitThis Whitby 42 is vintage Ted Brewer and was arguably his most commercially successful design. The strength of the Whitby 42 clearly lies in her accommodations. There are good-sized staterooms forward and aft, and both have large adjoining heads with showers. The “U” shaped galley is spacious and perfectly positioned to keep the cook out of the way of passengers and crew. In addition, there is a large saloon, comfortable navigation station and even a workbench along the passageway between the navigation station and after stateroom.  She’s a very roomy and well designed boat with enough storage for a years worth of provisions. Family issues on the west coast are forcing a quick sale.

This vessel needs some repair and updating before being able to navigate.

All offers are presented. This is a “she has good bones” story. She has been around the world on her own bottom.

Ever After is a classic offshore cruiser designed by the famed yacht designer Ted Brewer. She was built by Whitby Boatworks in Ontario, Canada and is very comfortable for cruising or as a live-aboard. She is a spacious center cockpit ketch with a full keel, skeg rudder(enhanced 20%), balsa cored topsides and solid molded fiberglass below the waterline. The strength of the Whitby 42 clearly lies in her accommodations. 

As you enter the salon there is a U-shaped galley with a refrigerated ice box, 3-burner propane stove/oven, a double sink and lots of storage. Custom cabinetry above galley sinks also provides storage. Forward of the galley is an L-shaped settee/berth with a drop down dining table. To starboard as you enter the salon there is a Nav station with a drop-down bar/table and bulkhead storage port and starboard. The salon woodwork is very nice and she is equipped with a beautiful teak boxed mast and teak and holly sole. Forward of the salon is a full head (Jabsco marine)and a forward V-berth cabin. Aft of the Nav station there is a workbench in the passageway to the aft cabin. There is access to the rebuilt 80-HP Ford Lehman diesel from the passageway. The aft cabin is nicely equipped with a large athwartship berth, lots of storage, adjacent head (composting) and access from the cabin directly to the cockpit.

Ever After has undergone many major improvements and upgrades over the last number of years.
